An analysis done by Brian Freitas, an analyst at independent research provider Smartkarma, shows Mindtree (estimated inflows of $198 million or Rs 1,460 crore), SRF ($243million or Rs 1,794 crore), IRCTC ($155 million or Rs 1,144 crore), Mphasis ($210 million or Rs 1,550 crore), Godrej Properties ($ 212 million or Rs 1,565 crore), and Zomato ($210 million or Rs 1,550 crore).

Further, Mindtree and Godrej Properties can see inflows of $185 million (Rs 1,365 crore) and $170 million (Rs 1,255 crore), respectively.

Food delivery firm Zomato, which made its stock market debut in July, should be one of the three recent global listing to make it to the MSCI index

 

Another 18 are seen as potential inclusion candidates in the MSCI Small Cap index. Some of them are BSE, Easy Trip Planners and Angel Broking.

 

Analysts said the candidate inclusion list may change if stock prices change drastically in the run-up to the cut-off date.

 

The global index provider undertakes a comprehensive review for stocks where it analyses if they conform to the minimum size and other investability requirements.
